The Impact Of Rate Cut?

In the recently held press conference by RBI governor and the announcement made by him regarding the 40 bps cut in the repo rate – the interest rate that the RBI charges for funds given to banks – will make funds cheaper for banks thus aiding them to bring down lending rates. Amidst this tough time when credit offtake is sluggish and investments have halted in the economy. This move will help in bringing the EMIs on home, auto, personal and term loan rates to come down in the coming days.

Banks are also expected to slash deposit rates on various tenures to manage its asset-liability position. Now, Savers and pensioners will see their returns coming down.

Further adding into this the 40 bps cut in reverse repo rate — the interest rate that the RBI offers to banks for funds parked with the central bank — will help to prompt banks to make available funds for the productive sectors of the economy. Currently, banks have been parking close to Rs 7-8 lakh crore at the RBI’s reverse repo window instead of lending these funds.
